// TrigramIndex implements a heuristic for SpecialCaseList that allows to
// filter out ~99% incoming queries when all regular expressions in the
// SpecialCaseList are simple wildcards with '*' and '.'. If rules are more
// complicated, the check is defeated and it will always pass the queries to a
// full regex.
// The basic idea is that in order for a wildcard to match a query, the query
// needs to have all trigrams which occur in the wildcard. We create a trigram
// index (trigram -> list of rules with it) and then count trigrams in the query
// for each rule. If the count for one of the rules reaches the expected value,
// the check passes the query to a regex. If none of the rules got enough
// trigrams, the check tells that the query is definitely not matched by any
// of the rules, and no regex matching is needed.
// A similar idea was used in Google Code Search as described in the blog post:
#include "llvm/ADT/SmallVector.h"
#include "llvm/ADT/StringMap.h"
#include <string>
#include <unordered_map>
#include <vector>
namespace llvm {
class StringRef;
class TrigramIndex {
/// Inserts a new Regex into the index.
void insert(std::string Regex);
/// Returns true, if special case list definitely does not have a line
/// that matches the query. Returns false, if it's not sure.
bool isDefinitelyOut(StringRef Query) const;
/// Returned true, iff the heuristic is defeated and not useful.
/// In this case isDefinitelyOut always returns false.
bool isDefeated() { return Defeated; }
// If true, the rules are too complicated for the check to work, and full
// regex matching is needed for every rule.
bool Defeated = false;
// The minimum number of trigrams which should match for a rule to have a
// chance to match the query. The number of elements equals the number of
// regex rules in the SpecialCaseList.
std::vector<unsigned> Counts;
// Index holds a list of rules indices for each trigram. The same indices
// are used in Counts to store per-rule limits.
// If a trigram is too common (>4 rules with it), we stop tracking it,
// which increases the probability for a need to match using regex, but
// decreases the costs in the regular case.
std::unordered_map<unsigned, SmallVector<size_t, 4>> Index{256};
